Life and The Zero Sum Game

Life is not a game.

There is nothing to win.

It’s not a competition.

There are no places and no prizes.

That said.

I often meet people who do treat life as if it is a game. When I engage with these people, I make them play my game instead.

I call it The Zero Sum Game.

The rules are simple.

I win or no one wins because when I win everyone wins.

I win when you realize this is not a game, it’s life and to treat it as a game is to give yourself every excuse to abuse people without guilt and instead pat yourself on the back for your gamesmanship.

When I win, everyone wins.

We are all connected and the more of us that stop playing games the more of us there are that become intolerant of the game players. The more of us there are playing The Zero Sum Game.

At that point it’s exponential in growth and all that resist change are destroyed by those who will no longer put up with treating life as game.

Don’t hate the player destroy the desire to ever see it as a game again.

How you do that is by showing them all the damage they inflict by treating it as a game.

You shred the veil of their delusions with will and intent with the fewest words possible and let them deal with it.

Then sit back and get ready for the intellectual fight that you have already won because your intent is in the best interest of the sum.

Seeing life as a game is for the some.

The some versus the sum.

In any debate the some will always have its ass handed to it mightily by the sum.

#1 It can only be game if there is something to win.

In order to create the delusion of a game you have create what winning means and look to compete.

Life is not a game as we are all interdependent upon each other to survive and live and all completion does is create a class that must be the losers of the game with parameters created to absolve one of denying the truth that all ones are interdependent upon all ones in a shared reality therefore allowing one to inflict whatever damage the game deems fit.

It takes personal acts of delusion to create the idea of it being a game so one can reward oneself for creating losers by winning.

Life is not a game and any who days different is living in a narcissistic delusion created to gratify the self and absolve the self of guilt.

Funny, Max. I see life as a game. I can not take us very seriously. Cause we are not.

Life is overwhelmingly present in our universe. Maybe infinite.

I think life is a game. You enter it with no knowledge, totally depending on one or more 'advanced' players. You learn to call them 'mommy and/or daddy'.

They can give you a lead or a backlog. Nothing you can do about it. There is no choice, you got to commence the game.

It is the way you play it that defines you.

You enter a game without rules. All is permitted. And at some point it will be ' game over ' .

There is no reward to win.

How you play the game defines you. You have to figure out your own reward.

I sometimes wonder, do we really want to experience freedom? Do we even know, what it is, freedom? Do good (whatever that is) people earn more freedom than bad (whatever that is) people? If good was bound to win and bad was bound to loose, it would be a rule. No freedom. At least, I can not connect freedom to any rule......

It seems a complicated game, life. How can you win, life? But it is a game. I see no living entity change the universe......

We do not set OUR rules. In this game I am completely free to set my rules. So I do, it is the way I play, and it defines me.

And the universe? What do we know? Is it different from us? Or was it born into the game as well?

I know, my idea of freedom is resentful to many. It rules out security, a handbook of how to. We, mankind are free to do whatever we like. Whatever we do, we will have little chance of destroying our playground (universe).

And still, since I seem to be a part of the mankind-team, I would love to see us make it to the end of the game. At some point team up and win.....make to the end of our game. The end of our time, the end of our universe. Will we succeed with 7 billion appointed volunteers? Likely not, but it makes the game interesting.
